I have a confession. This morning, I met the day with a little music from the Flannery Brothers. Um...without my kids. Yes, this music is that good. Once you turn it on, it's just infectious. I'm literally singing along with the song Sleepyhead. My kids love it but, so do I.

The Flannery Brothers have won thirteen prestigious awards, including the Lennon Award for Best Children’s Song in the 2008 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Their influences range from Jonathan Richman and The Beach Boys to Harry Nilsson and the Muppets. The music is upbeat, uplifting, fun and definitely great for kids while still being enjoyable for parents. The first two albums from the Flannery Brothers, Love Songs for Silly Things and Move Over Lullabies...It's Time for Wake Up Songs, have been met with overwhelming success. On October 19, their third CD, The New Explorers Club hits and will no doubt become an instant fave among kids and parents alike.

The New Explorers Club invites the whole family to go exploring with songs that are perfect to dance to, sing along with and rock out to with the whole family. Songs about submarine diving, kite flying and, of course, pirates mixed in with silly songs about lying down on the kitchen floor and swallowing a bug make this disc both fun and unique.

I'm loving the new disc as well as songs from the previous two albums. Broccoli Yet from Love Songs for Silly Things is just hilarious while having an awesome tune and catchy lyrics. Knowing that the Flannery Brothers are busy at work on yet another album, Dance Songs for Silly Things, gives me hope that children's music will continue to be awesome.
